Kagan Structures for teacher professional development

Post by mriskus » Sat Apr 28, 2012 10:27 am

Good evening,
This questions is directed to Dr. Kagan. I just finished the second day of the Kagan training in the United Arab Emriates. I love everything that we did and think the most powerful part of it is that the professional development utilized the very structures were were learning about. Last year I finished my doctorate at Arizona State University where I studied collaborative teacher professional development. Now that I've attended this workshop I think that the kagan structures could be a powerful vehicle to drive teacher professional development. I was wondering if you had conducted any research concerning the effectiveness of using Kagan structures to facilitate collaborative teacher professional development? Would you be interested in studying this?

Thanks,
Dr. A. Michael Riskus, Ed.D.
